I'm CTO and Co-Founder of this little venture, Boondockers Welcome. It's been a real adventure! My co-founder and mother, Marianne, is the real RVer, whereas I'm still in the dreaming stage. My husband and I live in downtown Kitchener, Ontario (about 100km from downtown Toronto) with our 2 school-aged boys.
I'm pretty handy with a computer. So's my hubby. i can also sing really well, but that doesn't come in handy nearly as often.
One cat, Columbia.
I currently just live the RV life vicariously through my mom, although my husband and I have been debating for about a year over whether or not to buy a tent trailer. We love tent camping and would really like to be able to do it with a little more comfort. Our biggest difficulty in making the decision isn't on the trailer itself, but on what to tow the darn thing with. We currently have just one car, a Hyundai Elantra, and while it's really tight in there with our two young boys who are both still in car seats, we aren't sure we're prepared to trade it in for a gas-guzzling minivan. Oh, how I wish they made vehicles where you could just flip a switch to go from "super econo mode" to "power towing mode"! (Or maybe they do already, but I doubt it will be in our price range!) If we ever do get ourselves together, when our kids are just a little older, we'd love to travel out to the Maritimes with them. Until then we'll be sleeping on the ground at The Pinery Provincial park in the summers.
Enjoyed meeting the 'Admin' family, who graciously made room for us in spite of their busy schedule! A beautiful area with a huge park not too far away...it was a lovely peaceful night. Would definitely stay again...thanks 'Admin'!
Admin was gracious enough to allow us to stay in her driveway, even though she was not there for the weekend. It is a lovely spot and the surrounding area is quiet to walk around in. It is close to restaurants and stores if the need arises. Hope to meet in the future. Enjoy the summer months. Helm and Sherrie
I want to thank " admin" for their quick and positive response to my last minutes request for a place to park. I had a last minute appointment less than 10 minutes from their location. The location was quiet and perfect for me and my Class B motor home. It was a pleasure to meet "admin". I was able to leave in the morning and after working around the construction and detours and get to my appointment in plenty of time. I would highly recommend "admin" for anyone needing a place to park in this area. Thanks " admin" and hope to meet again soon. :)
Admin and her hubby were non-intrusive, helpful hosts with a great, quiet, extremely well situated spot on a dead end street, in downtown KW, right near the core and the Oktober-festivities. (Totally walkable) This location made our visit so successful because we were able to park, walk downtown, enjoy the street vendors and the festivities and then continue on foot to the ceremonies at Transylvania Haus (AKA Stampede Corral) and simply walk back afterwards. No cabs, no DUIs. perfect. Oktoberfest done right? Stay with Admin! Thanks you guys!
